  • We did not expect how large the museum is. It truly shares a lot of history. It is very detail oriented and loving.Mr.Sweet and his wife are the kindest and sweetest people I have met. Mr. Sweet took his time to explain a lot of details to my 9 and 11 year old about the railroad and overall history. I could see how much he loves his museum and how proud he is.The gift shop has a lot of treasures that was not expected. Thank you so much for this beautiful and unexpectes adventure!
  • A top notch collection of just about everything old west, Billy the Kid nostalgia, along with personal items from amazing former residents of Fort Sumner and surrounding areas each with their own historical tales. Glad we stopped, well worth it....The gun display is to die for.. no pun intended.
